Went there for a late lunch after walking the pier. The waitress was personable and recommended two of our rolls. The rolls were wonderful, complex flavors, interesting combinations, and quality fish. We would definitely go again.

I went out of my way to eat at Harney Sushi, and I was disappointed based on its #5 ranking on Trip Advisor (as of March 2021). My wife and I looked at this place before traveling to San Diego, and we agreed that the...reviews looked positive and the prices reasonable. However, it was missing all of the elements of a top rated Trip Advisor restaurant. For a #5 ranking on Trip Advisor, I expect great prices, great quality, style, and flavor. The price and flavor were slightly above average, but the platting of the sushi lacked attention and originality. Additionally, the roles seemed to have a lot of rice and not that much fish. I have eaten at a lost of sushi restaurants and I can only give this one an average rating.More

Wow! We went off of trip advisor recommendation for this place during our quick visit to Oceanside and, once again, trip advisor recommendation didn't disappoint!!! We ordered a roll - katsu chicken entree - a bento box - and a strawberry hibiscus martini.....WOW! Everything was...delicious!!! This place was packed so go when you aren't in a hurry and can just enjoy the food, drinks and atmosphere.More

Large restaurant in a modern setting. They have got a good selection of rolls and nigiri/sashimi, as well as other entrees. Reasonable prices and tasty food.

Had an amazing selection on the Happy Hour menu and regular menu for a party of 4. We tried the hot and cold sake; both were good, not the cheap stuff but at a good price. The cold sake was infused with strawberry so it...was quite good. I also had a Sapporo because I actually enjoy beer more with sushi. We also had the Gyoza, mixed veggie tempura and a couple of roll samplers as an appetizer. For dinner we had the Culichi Wa Roll, Baked Dynamite Roll, Chuck Norris Roll, and Pirate Roll. That was about a roll too much, we had a few leftovers. Service was exceptional; Landon was our server and kept on top of everything. Cost was only around $100 for a very large and enjoyable meal.More

Very good food, service, and atmosphere. As a first time sushi eater I don’t have anything to compare to but my son said it’s the best that he’s had in the two years since he left Okinawa.

The name doesn't sound like a name associated with "sushi." But Harney Sushi is a beautiful restaurant that is modern, yet with a touch of traditional Japanese flare in it's presentation and setting. (Harney is the street where the original Harney Sushi is located in...Old Town San Diego.) The food was absolutely fantastic and the food is presented in a beautiful way. The food was also very, very good. The serving size was nice and we had great service. Really enjoyable experience and highly recommended.More

Unlike Cloak + Petal which I reviewed separately, this Japanese restaurant has a little bit more gong for it. Located in a San Diego suburb, the staff are friendly - I didn’t have a booking but they accommodated me at the sushi counter o a...busy Saturday night. These guys specialize in rolls more than anything and yes they have their own take on things but for the most part I found it to be very good and fresh!More

After exiting the Amtrak/Coaster train station I found the very large, spacious, luxurious Harney Sushi just down the street. Seating is very comfortable, atmosphere is stylish with a nice urban flair. Service by GM David & Server Madison was impeccable-professional, courteous, on point in all...regards. I had their 2018 award winning "Bruce Lee" roll which was phenomenal. Everything else was tasty and the best nigiri, the edamame was particularly good too. This is the best sushi restaurant in Oceanside. Highly Recommended.More
